The Asus K72DR A1 Review

The Asus k72dr is a great multimedia device that also offers a super key board that greatly assists in typing. The machine suffers from under -class CPU performance and a low battery life. The product is also fairly priced compared to many other computers of the same class. It is a perfect foil to have as a second personal computer at home as it will take care of undemanding shores with relative ease.

The device uses a mobile AMD -three core Phenom N830 processor with ATI Radeon chipset of model number HD5470. It also comes with a pre installed memory of four Giga byte technology DDR3. It utilizes hard disk drive for its storage concerns. Its total HD size is 500GB with a useful hard disk drive of 7200 rpm, the storage armour is further bolstered by SD/MMC card and SDHC card. The Asus K72DR ships in with operating system microsoft windows 7 home premium edition. The machine performs its networking duties with the aid of ethernet 10/100/1000 mbpc and Wi-Fi type 802 11n/b/g. The interface comes with four USB 2.0 ports with the additional video interfaces HDMI and VGA also ensuite.

The machine also ships with in -built microphone and webcam, and also carries the all -important Blu -try drive that puts it a cut above most computers. You are also likely to appreciate the three -in -one memory card reader, but you will definately roath the absence of bluetooth, 3G/4G broadband and eSATA facilities. The machine comes in a 17.3 inch glossy LCD with LED, covers a width of 16.5 inches, a depth of 11 inches and a height of 1.6 inches. It weighs 6.9 pounds and a prime of 8 pounds when fully stocked with assortments.

The device performs quite commendably when playing Direct X9 mode as it provides a tidy 35 frames per second, but it returns a flat shift when put through the rigors of the more potent Pure DirectX10. The battery also disappoints with its below -per two hours run time in the test by PC World Battery Testing. Its CPU performance is also likely to test your nerves as will the loss of brightness and color shifting when viewing angles are deviated. But you will more than love its excellent keyboard with its full -size numeric key pad. It does not disappoint with its high definition videos or even with its decent audio performance.

The Asus k72dr is a pretty steady machine with mixed results but aces it with its keyboard in a market that is certainly crying for decent keyboards. It’s price of just under 900 us dollars will certainly invite buyers at the cost of a regressive cpu that comes unstuck in hard labour.
